Maca root? This is also known as  Peruvian Ginseng. It is an ancient Incan superfood crammed with essential vitamins, minerals, amino acids & phytonutrients, making it a nutritional powerhouse with loads of benefits:

It helps increases the body’s resistance to the damaging effects of stress & disease. It helps to regulate, support & balance hormonal systems & so is good to balance mood (including stress, anxiety & depression, menstrual issues) & to boost energy levels. It is reputed to good for sexual health, improving libido & fertility in both men & women. It also helps give you radiant glowing skin.

It tastes a little like coffee & slightly bitter, hence in this recipe, I have mixed in Manuka honey to balance out the flavours & to add to the goodness.

Ground baobab on the other hand has a delicious tangy citrus flavour, is packed with vitamin C, fibre & anti-oxidants, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, zinc & vitamins B1, B2, B6, B12, B7; nutrients to give you an energy boost, support the immune system & reduce fatigue.
